Home Albany Online How it Works

How it Works

Albany Online uses curriculum provided by K¹² and FuelEd. Learning can happen at home, on the road, or wherever an Internet connection can be found. While attendance, teacher interaction, and daily lessons are conducted online, our lessons use physical materials and offline tools as well.

For middle and high school students, Albany Online uses the FuelEd curriculum. Whether targeting a top-tier, 4-year university, a local community college, or an immediate career, Albany Online prepares students to maximize their post-high school success.

State-certified Teachers, Superior Teaching Tools

At Albany Online, all students interact with one or more state-certified teachers (depending on the grade level) and communicate regularly with their teachers through e-mail, telephone, and online meetings. Each Albany Online family receives online and offline materials as needed, including a wide array of textbooks, CDs, videos, and other hands-on tools and resources when needed to enhance the learning experience. These materials complement the interactive online elements of our program, ensuring that students receive instruction using the best method for each subject matter.

Extensive School Support System

Albany Online also provides an extensive support system for both parents and students.

In grades 6-8, working closely with the teacher, the parent (or other responsible adult) helps to facilitate his or her progress and working to modify the pace and schedule as needed.

At the high school level the adult is less involved, as students work at more of a collective pace with a class of students in conjunction with the teacher. Each teacher is trained in his or her specific subject area. In addition, networking opportunities are provided through various events and outings, enabling the entire school community to keep in contact.

Individualized Learning, Public School Accountability

In addition to providing individualized learning, as an online public school program, Albany Online provides the structure, administrative support, oversight, accountability, and state testing required of all public school students.
